    hello

    ladies and gentlemen I hope everyone is having a good day.

    I have one question and hopefully I find an answer. I bought a used Galaxy s8 SM-G950FD (8.0.0) Exynos

    last night I rooted it (magisk). The issue that i am facing when I restart my phone ( after rooting my phone) I got "only official released binaries are allowed to be flashed" and the phone freezes on that screen. I solved that by flashing another ROM that I downloaded from sammobile.com.

    Now my phone is working fine and I rooted it again (magisk) but i am scared to restart it I do not want to get "only official released binaries are allowed to be flashed" after restarting the phone.... What are your suggestions?
    ( i do not want to flash a ROM every time I restart my phone lol)

    I hope my question is clear ( English is not my first language).

    My suggestion would be to stick to unrooted stock software as that is the most stable and secure software available for the S8.

    you dont need to stick to unrooted firmware, the issue is with knox it needs to be disabled. you will need to flash your stock firmware then wait 7 days until the samsung jail is finished. there are lots of threads on XDA about this its a common issue and there are easy fixes. but you need to flash back to stock before you can do them.
